Geneva, the capital of human rights, is also the capital of oil trading. One third of the world's oil is traded from the shores of Lake Geneva. But this honeymoon between Geneva and black gold is not without its ups and downs. Gunvor, one of the world's leaders, made headlines in 2019 for corruption in Congo Brazzaville. Roland Chauville and Moke Loamba, Swiss and Congolese human rights activists, decide to shed light on this affair. Their investigation will plunge them into a dangerous waltz where lies, intimidation and the wait-and-see attitude of corrupt powers continue to undermine international law.
This documentary pays tribute to the activists who denounce, sometimes at the risk of their lives, the impunity of the powerful.
